About Us

Compassionate Healthcare

Children deserve the best medical care possible in a friendly, nonthreatening and safe environment.

The current model of healthcare, centered around “office work” and “business hours” is unable to deliver such care.

Long waiting times, and exposure to others who are ill are not the ideal conditions for a sick child. Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care Centers are often not suitable for treating most common pediatric conditions.

We firmly believe that sick children should have access to high quality pediatric care in the most comfortable and safe place, and as soon as possible.

Experienced Medical Professional

Dr Oppenheimer received his medical education at the Mt Sinai School of Medicine, accomplished his Residency in Pediatrics there, and went on to earn a Fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology at the North Shore University Hospital,  followed by National Board Certification in Pediatric Medicine in 1984.

Dr Oppenheimer holds membership in the American Academy of Pediatrics, and served on the Schneider Children's Hospital Medical Leadership Community for 12 years.
